"Sarah O'Bannon"

Written by Anonymous

Estimated reading time β€” 1 minute

Coffins used to be built with holes in them, attached to six feet of copper tubing and a bell. The tubing would allow air for victims buried under the mistaken impression they were dead. Harold, the Oakdale gravedigger, upon hearing a bell, went to go see if it was children pretending to be spirits. Sometimes it was also the wind. This time it wasn’t either. A voice from below begged, pleaded to be unburied.

β€œYou Sarah O’Bannon?” Yes! the voice assured.

β€œYou were born on September 17, 1827?”

“Yes!”

β€œThe gravestone here says you died on February 19?”

“No I’m alive, it was a mistake! Dig me up, set me free!”

β€œSorry about this, ma’am,” Harold said, stepping on the bell to silence it and plugging up the copper tube with dirt. β€œBut this is August. Whatever you is down there, you ain’t alive no more, and you ain’t comin’ up.”
